"...those who would see wonderful things
must often be ready to travel alone" Henry Van Dyke

Almost on a whim, in October of 2008 I decided to load up my car with camera and bird-watching equipment, bird books, maps and a list of bird watching locations, and head north into Malaysia from my home in Singapore. I had no set plans, no firm route, and no hotel bookings. I left with a wonderful sense of freedom – it had probably been 40 years since I set out on an almost totally unplanned solo trip.

I like the color in your subjects, the birds are awesome. You should come and photograph the flying of the cranes at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Center.
Take a look at my books took on lighter subjects. Feline Fractals Fantasy, But I Thought I was Mommy's Baby and A Cat Abroad on the Streets of Heidelberg
